Coach Nick Saban and the #8 Crimson Tide came away with a win last week against against Auburn on a Hail Mary play on the final snap of the game. With their only loss coming against #7 Texas Longhorns earlier in the season, the Tide still have a chance at competing for a potential College Football Playoff bid if they can beat #1 Georgia this Saturday. The SEC Championship game kicks off at 4:00 PM ET on CBS network.

Watch Alabama Football on Sling TV (our preferred service)

Sling TV has three base plans to choose from, but Sling Orange is the best for NCAA football (including Alabama football). It gives you 31 channels, including ESPN, for just $40 per month. If you want the best sports channels, you’ll need the Sports Extra add-on — an additional $11 per month that includes the SEC Network and ESPNU.

If you’re looking for something a little more, try out Sling Blue for $40 per month. It’s aimed at pro football and includes 42 channels for the same price. You can get the best of both worlds with Sling Orange & Blue for $55 per month, giving you 48 channels. 

Watch Alabama Football on DIRECTV STREAM

DIRECTV STREAM says it has more regional sports networks than any other streaming TV provider, which also means it has the SEC Network — perfect for any Alabama fans that can’t wait to see the Crimson Tide roll over the competition. With four different packages to choose from, there’s a DIRECTV STREAM option for every price point.

DIRECTV STREAM also offers a five-day free trial, so you can try the service out for yourself before signing up. DIRECTV STREAM also includes HBO Max, SHOWTIME, STARZ, and EPIX free for the first three months. 

Watch Alabama Football on Fubo

Fubo is one of the best options for streaming sports. Not only does it include a massive number of channels, but it provides access to nearly every sports-specific network, including the SEC Network. There are three main plans with Fubo: Pro, Elite, and Ultimate, but the Pro plan includes everything you need. At $74.99 per month, Fubo gives access to 169+ channels and 1,000 hours of Cloud DVR space. Most importantly, the Fubo Pro plan includes ABC, CBS, and the SEC Network. 

The Elite Plan offers 244+ channels for $84.99 per month, while the Ultimate Plan has 288+ channels for $99.99 per month. There are also additional add-ons that come with the Ultimate Plan. If you want more content outside of sports, a higher-tier plan is the way to go. If sports is your only streaming need, the Pro plan strikes the best balance between content and affordability.

Watch Alabama Football on Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV has two main plans: the ad-supported version at $76.99 per month and the ad-free option at $89.99 per month. Both Hulu + Live TV plans include the same 90+ channels, including ABC, the SEC Network, CBS, and more. The good news is that Hulu + Live TV gives you easy access to all the channels that carry Alabama football without needing any add-on. 

The bonus of Hulu + Live TV is that it also comes with a Disney Plus bundle and ESPN Plus, so you have plenty of family-friendly content when you aren’t watching football.

Watch Alabama Football on YouTube TV

YouTube TV brings with it 100+ channels for just $72.99 per month. It’s hard to nail down the exact channel count because it’s based on your ZIP code, but it includes ABC, CBS Sports, and the SEC Network. Of course, there are plenty of other channels to choose from, like ESPN and FS1. 

YouTube TV also has a free trial so that you can test the waters. If you already have a Gmail account, it’s easy to sign up. If you don’t, just make one, and you can get started watching Alabama football in no time.

Watch Alabama Football on Vidgo

Vidgo prides itself on being one of the most user-friendly streaming services since it requires no contracts and is completely transparent on pricing. With two packages that range in price from $69.99 per month to $99.99 per month, subscribers also receive 20 hours of free DVR, at least 110 live channels, and on-demand content.

Both tiers include the SEC Network so that you can keep up with your favorite Alabama football teams. Currently, there is no free trial offer for Vidgo, but keep checking back in case a promotion pops up.
